Hunger in the Heartland Project:

A year has been spent exploring stories of hunger while uncovering individual and community solutions at work throughout the state. Now, the Hunger in the Heartland documentary puts a face on food insecurity in the Midwest. Created for the Coalition in Support of Hungry Children by Debra Landwehr Engle, producer, and Thomas Sawyer, director, the powerful 30-minute piece will serve as the basis for the day’s discussion. With writer Rachel Vogel Quinn, Deb has co-authored the Hunger in the Heartland Resource Guide for Alleviating Hunger in Your Community, No Matter Where You Live. Together the guide and documentary inspire and empower people to act locally on this issue of world importance.
